    Surface Pro charger not working

    I just posted a similar story in another thread. My charger failed after 6 months. It started to fail but as mentioned above, moving the cable at different angles worked for a short while but then soon failed completely. Now another 6 months on the same thing has happened to the replacement...

    Surface Pro UK Charger?

    I have had my Surface Pro 2 a year now. After 6 months my charger no longer worked. I believe the flimsy cable which is attached to the charger unit had broken internally. Having purchased my SP2 online from John Lewis I went to my local store and they simply exchanged the charger without fuss...

    I use Bluetooth to connect to my printer and to a wireless speaker in the kitchen and to a soundbar in my lounge. I have a 64gb micro sd card full of movies...... all working fine. I have my fingers crossed now hoping I haven't just jinxed myself.

    March update brings new WiFi driver

    The more I read this forum, the more I think the Microsoft Gods must be smiling on me because I have never had any trouble with my SP2. I have downloaded all the updates etc without any resulting problems. I did have a WiFi speed slowing down issue for a few days some weeks back but this kind of...

    Surface Pro 2 Camera-Multi Shots?

    Reading the manual I understand the SP2 camera automatically takes several shots rather than just a single to allow you to choose the best. Mine doesn't do this. Do I need to change a setting somewhere?

    Win 8.1 and RT 8.1 Impressions

    Any ideas why some tiles can be 4 different sizes whilst others can only be 2? Not a major problem but puzzling.
